Chess program

Hello,

I am a new owner of a Glo, and I play chess. So Im happy that there is one on the Glo. Do you know what program is this ? engine ?

As the interface is very simple, do you know if there will be updates ?

There is also another program (pb chess)
http://pbchess.vlasovsoft.net/en/index.html
Is it possible to install it on the glo ?

Thanks for informations

I doubt we'll see any updates to it. Everything in the "extras" section, as far as I'm aware, has never received any update on the Touch, which has been out for about a year and a half now.

Actually, they did update the Sudoko game. Any number you chose used to stay selected, so you'd have to click on a square with the selected number, and then change that number to the real one you wanted. (I know that sounds confusing, but if you've ever played it, you know what I mean.) Now the number selection stays blank and you can select any square, then add the number. The interface at the bottom is also slightly different.

I would love to see a chess program on my KT though.
It would seem the perfect device for such a game.

I have not used my Touch since I got my Glo, but it was my understanding that the latest KT firmware included Chess in the "extras" section.

Looking in the extras section of my KT, all I see is Sketch pad, Sudoko and Web browser.
I'm. using 2.1.5

Am I looking in the wrong place?

Really? how strange. I have 2.1.5 r 43939
how did you get that update? manually or via the update function?

What country do you live in?

Do you have a KT or a glo?
